The report, titled ‘Realising and Facilitating pan-African Investment’, combines unique data analysis and insights sourced via a global research survey with interviews and commentary from leading voices from the African investment landscape.
The research shines a light on the growth trends in pan-African capital deployment by exploring the sectors and jurisdictions attracting the most significant investment while introducing the facilitators, advisors and structures supporting such financing.
Foreign money may well be flowing more readily into the continent but this groundbreaking report shows how little of this is supported and processed by African lawyers, accountants and financiers with most international investors relying on non-African entities to support their capital deployment.
Readers can also join us in reviewing the growing importance of DFIs (Development Finance Institutions) as, subsequent to recent G8 commitments, these organisations are primed to be the force behind capital flow into African markets across the next five years.
Commenting on this collaboration, Scott Cowan, Chief Executive and Co-Founder of the Africa Professional Services Group (incorporating Africa Legal) said,
“When we entered this long-term collaboration with Rwanda Finance Limited and the Kigali International Financial Centre we were all excited by the prospect of supporting a true African success story and seizing another opportunity to showcase the aptitude, excellence and passion of our pan-African legal community. With this second report we have access to even more robust data which showcases not only the current investment landscape but also provides insight into where lawyers, financiers and funders need to be positioning themselves to ensure future relevance and the realisation of opportunity.”
Echoing this, Hortense Mudenge, Chief Operating Officer of Rwanda Finance Limited, said,
"As we embarked on this research journey, we knew it would be full of great insights and would allow for a fresh and new perspective of Africa. In this second edition of our research series, we are bringing to light key players involved in capital deployment and disclosing barriers and solutions to pan-African capital flow. Thanks to our trusted partner Africa Legal, our readers will be in for a treat."
